Galley 09 is dedicated to interactive, all ages, artist-led projects and hosts a year round participatory exhibition series that invites families to collaborate, contribute and engage with artist practice.

Join us during the Exquisite Bodies public Creative Development: 17 December 2022 – 8 January 2023
Officially open for PLAY: 9 January – 4 December 2023

Exquisite Bodies, in collaboration with Bruno Booth, is an interactive exhibition designed for all-ages and abilities* to engage. The exhibition interrupts preconceived perceptions of disability and expands ideas of beauty, value, identity and body image.

Audiences are invited to build figurative sculptures with large foam blocks, and play surrealist drawing games that invite surprise and mistakes.

*Exquisite Bodies is an all-ages multi-sensory space that is designed to adapt to all abilities through engagement and conversation. Please let staff know if you or someone you’re with has any specific needs so you can meaningfully engage and feel safe.
